The club is located four stories underground and features 23,000 square feet of space, incredible sound and lighting, and a floor-to-ceiling 16K screen.

The party promises to represent a cross-section of London’s queer and trans nightlife community – and has even brought in Liverpool-born portrait photographer Matt Ford to do some of the photography and artwork for the series MILK parties.

All images reference Leigh Bowery of Soho and the vibrant and varied backgrounds of the LGBT scene. The MILK promises to fill a void in London nightlife by being both daring and stimulating.
